Well it's not a critter but it did call out to me and now it joins the collection. All those glorious OMCs and OECs and possibly an OCC? This thing is a true sparkle bomb! It's English Victorian, silver over 18kt gold in the horseshoe shape with a little twist, 2cttw. Ordinarily I don't like the traditional one row of stones horseshoes but this one I like. It was sold at auction in England in 2010 and made it's way over to me. I had to scoop it up!

It’s beautiful!
Will you always wear points down or go points up sometimes? Or is it no matter?

I was reading up on the history of these and they said that points up bring the wearer good luck and points to the side brings everyone else good luck. I don't know what points down means, lol.

HI:

STUNNING! What a great find! Could it be worn as a necklace? Probably wouldn't hang properly.

cheers--Sharon

This is how I have it on right now. I guess I need to find out what points down means, lol.

My grandfather always said a horse shoe down like you are are wearing “the luck runs out” & up the other way the “luck stays in”.

Every house I’ve owned has had a horse shoe (we always had horses) nailed “somewhere” with the “luck staying in” - the lucky horse shoe.

Thanks Sharon! I was just talking with hubby about seeing if I could get a flip down bale added. I also think it would be stunning on a black velvet ribbon but I would never wear it that way. I can't stand anything that close around my neck.

LOL figures. I guess I'll have to wear it with the points sideways so everyone has good luck. The pin mechanism is more towards the curve so if I wear it points up it hangs funny.

It's adorable and packs a sparkle punch. The outer row addition just gets me.
I love it! :love:

Thank you! That outer row is really the only reason I like it. I've been doing a lot of searching and I haven't been able to find another one like it. They are mainly in the one row of stones variety which I'm not really fond of.

Dang. Love that. LOVE. reminds me of the bow I passed on (still kicking myself). Sometimes when you know, you know. Nice find and so glad you jumped in it.

Thanks! Yeah, hubby was like, but it's a horseshoe, you don't want that! Umm yes, YES I do, lol.
